O'Reilly Maximizes Oracle Productivity with its Latest Release Exclusively Focused On Oracle Net8 Configuration And Troubleshooting

Sebastopol, CA--Oracle database administrators, developers and system administrators can now access a sole source providing the essential information needed to work with Net8. O'Reilly's newest Oracle release, Oracle Net8 Configuration and Troubleshooting (Toledo & Gennick, US $39.95), is a practical and focused guide that reveals the required information to install, configure, tune, and troubleshoot Net8.

Net8 is the fundamental Oracle technology that allows Oracle services and clients to communicate with each other over a network. Net8 is most often used to connect client software to Oracle database servers, though it may also be used to connect database servers to one another, allowing communication between distributed databases.

"Clearly," the authors note, "if you are an Oracle database administrator or developer, you need to understand how to make Oracle part of this new Internetworked world. Net8 is a key Oracle technology that will be around for the long's worth learning well." The authors wrote Oracle Net8 Configuration and Troubleshooting, a comprehensive and focused resource, to help others master this very important technology.

Oracle Net8 Configuration and Troubleshooting discusses how Oracle's network architecture, products, and name resolution methods work; provides the details of client and server configurations using a variety of Oracle protocols and networking products; describes Oracle's various network management utilities; and, presents a variety of networking troubleshooting techniques, commonly encountered problems, and a complete summary of all networking files and commands.

"Net8 setup is often effortless, and one sometimes forgets about it until there are signs of trouble. This book will help you deal with that trouble if and when it arises, and it will also give you the in-depth knowledge you need to decide which of the many available Net8 configurations and options will most benefit your users."
--Christopher Gait, Senior Systems Engineering Specialist, Oracle Corporation

"This book is great. It has good general overviews, as well as many detailed technical examples. It has provided me with many handy references for troubleshooting Net8 connectivity and provided many ideas for ways to enhance our utilization of Oracle to maximize our business productivity."
--Stephen Andert, Oracle DBA II, First Health Corporation
